Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book for beginners I loved the step by step guides and the variety of examples, it is the most complete book for beginners I’ve found. I’ve done several projects already (can’t really call them finished pieces of art yet!) and am delighted with my progress. It is a book I will come back to as I become more proficient to build on what I’ve learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Book for Beginners There were many books about Watercolours for Beginners, but after taking the time to stand and go through them all, this is the one I decided on. Starts at the basics without being patronising. Takes you by the hand and leads you to where you want to go and the artist you want to be. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book was bought for my 10yr old great niece, and it looked ideal for her as she is just starting to use watercolours. I felt quite jealous when I looked through this book that I had not bought one for myself too. She was delighted with it.
